Way to stir the pot, @TheChristinaKim
Yep, Dr. Kim knows all, because as she said, "I WAS THERE. FACT."

Kim has serious issues with impulse control. Can't keep her mouth shut.

That's right, she got so wound up defending Ryann O'Toole that she proceeded to throw Kerr under the bus.

By the way, just curious, would you ever be in favor of allowing the Solheim Cup Captain to pick the entire team?
How about 1/2 the team, 6 picks?
Maybe 0 picks, using only points or using only Rolex Rankings?
Or do you like it the way it is now?

No way.

I'd like to see captain's pick reduced to one, just to accommodate the odd good player who didn't play in enough tournaments due to injury, or being a rookie or something like that, can't get in on points.

If it were up to me, team selection would be based just on points and the points would be quadrupled, not just doubled, for the current year. This gives a better indication of who is playing well right now.

Isn't that the same thing you always say about Michelle Wie? And you weren't even there. Speak for yourself. FACT.

What you and I think will make no difference it will stay as it is.
As long as Nike is investing all the money it does in advertising and players
we will see sponsored nike players on the team regardless of how they play on tour.
You only change what you can.

The Main sponsor is Ping. I am sure that Nike would love nothing more than to promote a Ping event and get the word out on Ping.

I am sure that Meg Mallon is nothing more than a robot for Nike. She would like nothing more than to do what ever Nike says while getting no compensation in return and would rather not put the best team that she thinks is possible in her own opinion.

2 Captains picks is good. Gives her some flexibility and creates a little buzz. The competition for the few last spots also came down to the very end. I think that the current set up is working fine.

Jennifer Johnson ‏@JJohnson_LPGA 4 Aug
Well I guess winning isn't good enough to make @Solheim_Cup @lpga

Christina Kim ‏@TheChristinaKim 4 Aug
“@JJohnson_LPGA: Well I guess winning isn't good enough to make @Solheim_Cup @lpga”
It's not about winning. It's about Solheim points, chica

Jennifer Johnson ‏@JJohnson_LPGA 4 Aug
@TheChristinaKim @Solheim_Cup @lpga Captain's picks aren't based on points, obviously
Details

Wally ‏@Zoomm01 4 Aug
@JJohnson_LPGA @TheChristinaKim @Solheim_Cup @lpga Why is it so hard to get an answer to a question from you players ?
Details

Christina Kim ‏@TheChristinaKim 4 Aug
@Zoomm01 where has your question been, other than the one asking why we don't answer questions?! Ask me something; I'll likely answer.
Details

Wally ‏@Zoomm01 4 Aug
@TheChristinaKim WHO is upset ? You or Jennifer ? Is Jennifer upset she wasn't picked ?
Details

Christina Kim ‏@TheChristinaKim 4 Aug
@Zoomm01 I'm not upset over anything. She's upset and bitter. And one always is the first time they're not picked.
Details

Wally ‏@Zoomm01 4 Aug
@TheChristinaKim Well Christina, I think she's a better player then Gerina. How is Gerina captain, I don't get it. I can understand Michelle
Details

Christina Kim ‏@TheChristinaKim 4 Aug
@Zoomm01 you don't realize that meg picks whomever she picks for her reasons. Not your reasons.
Details

Dan Carroll ‏@dcgrind1956 5 Aug
@TheChristinaKim the Cup like O'Toole's did in 2011.
Details

Christina Kim ‏@TheChristinaKim 5 Aug
@dcgrind1956 1. Ryann was a great pick. 2. It's meg, not meg and Beth or Rosie and meg. 3. Kerr never teed it up so can't just blame Ryann
Details

Dan Carroll ‏@dcgrind1956 5 Aug
@TheChristinaKim 3/3 Kerr was injured and couldn't play. OToole was 2 up with 2 to play and lost both holes to lose the Cup. No comparison.
Details

Christina Kim ‏@TheChristinaKim 5 Aug
@dcgrind1956 Kerr wasn't injured to the point she couldn't play. Seriously. She played 2days before with zero injury. Don't backseat drive
Details

Dan Carroll ‏@dcgrind1956 5 Aug
@TheChristinaKim Didn't the PT advise her not to play? I seem to recall the PT being interviewed. FACTS!

Christina Kim ‏@TheChristinaKim 5 Aug
@dcgrind1956 I WAS THERE. FACT.

@TheChristinaKim I know, you won that day. So you also know that the PT advised her not to go. Why is that in dispute?

Has she blocked that fella yet ?

Isn't that what she normally does when people don't kiss her arse on there ?

The idea that Cristie Kerr was faking it is ridiculous.The US was in a great position to win,why would Cristie withdraw with a bogus injury ? It's not like she was about to shoot an 88,or miss a cut so couldn't be bothered getting up to finish her round off,or anything...

Xman most of the time you get the point.
I didn't say Nike sponsored the cup.
I was talking in broader terms please reread. Nike helps sponsor the lpga players thus the lpga. If they want one of their sponsored players on the team then it will probably happen.
